Oligodendroglioma Grade 3 Healing Journey

Hey you all, 

What a beautiful website.  I just wanted to stop by and post to share with you all a bit about my story and see what others have gone through in their healing.  Its amazing how we are all connected in this world.  In October of 2013 I was in a scooter accident and rushed to the ER.  They found a broken shoulder and because of where it was broken and near the spine, they legally performed a CAT scan and happened to find fogginess in the scan on my brain.  I had never had any symptoms that were related to a brain tumor, so this was shocking.  They then performed an MRI scan and announced I had brain cancer.  For the remainder of October and most of Novemeber I was in and out of the hospital.  3 MRIs later, A spinal tap, an EEG scan, and then followed by a biopsy I was shown I had an oligodendroglioma grade 3 in my left frontal temporal lobe.  This was an area where they said that if I wanted to perform a removal surgery, the most they would be able to take out would be about 40% and there were risks involved.  Instead they told me that I should begin radiation therapy immediately.

I chose not to get a surgery and also not to perform radiation.  As the side effects of both seemed threatening and could cause other massive physical ailments to my body.  Instead I invested and researched and began reached out to Dr. David Pearlmutter, writer of "The Grain Brain" also a man that through vitamins, lifestyle ideas and nutritition has cured patients with severe brain cancer.  I also reached out to the Tao of Wellness in Santa Monica, California and have been getting treatments by Dr. Maoshing Ni in acupuncture and chinese herbs.  Through diet, herbs, acupuncture, vitamins, and lifestyle I am creating a shift in my brain, as well as my life in other areas.  I have been blogging my entire healing journey if any of you all are interested in checking it out, the link is:


I also would love to interract with others who are or who have been through any similar or cancerous experience so we can share and bounce off each others stories.  I think everyones experience and bodies are all different but we are also so connected at the same time.  And, everyone has their own advice and opinions and ideas but I think most importantly it is helpful to seek out multiple types of information and then follow what our own bodies tell us to do because we are all different and the only person we truly have is ourselves and no one else can decide what our own bodies should do, including surgeons, doctors, etc...

Feel free to email me at gabolko@gmail.com - much love and healing support to you all and I look forward to sharing each others stories!
